Part of Education

Through in-depth scene and character study, students rehearse and perform their own Shakespearean scenes. By assuming the roles of actor, director, and designer, students engage with Shakespeare’s language in a new, exciting way, making connections between their own lives and the play’s characters, events, and literary techniques. This series of classroom workshops culminates in a final performance at BAM in which all participating schools come together to celebrate their collective achievements. No acting experience is necessary.

Teachers may choose between A Midsummer Night’s Dream  or Hamlet to focus on in class.

Space is limited and priority is given to teachers who also take advantage of our Shakespeare Teaches Teachers professional development program.


This program consists of twelve 45 minute workshops plus a final student performance at BAM.


Appropriate for grades 9—12
